Its perfect as it it :) [A]!

b) don’t believe in UFOs until he saw one -- plurality which is wrong
c) believed not in UFOs until he seen one -- the structure is unnecessary complicated.
d) hasn’t believed in UFOs until he sees one -- changes the meaning of the parent sentence
e) didn’t never believe in UFOs until he saw one -- two negatives in a sentence which is wrong as well.

Hence the answer should be [A]. Hope my explanation is accurate!

Regards,
A

The correct answer is "A" because it's in simple past tense.

hello guys,

i just want to note that, there is a parallelism error in your sentence:

" and take off like ..... " so how could we use the simple past tense while " take off " is simple present form.

please correct me if i am wrong.

thank you

Hello

Jonathon didn’t believe in UFOs until he saw one hover above his house and take off like a streak across the sky.

The two blue parts are parallel. They modify "one"/the UFO. That's why simple present tense is correct.

Hope it helps.
